I've been playing this game since the launch, first time I come across this piece of art.
My first day in guild wars 2, I saw the vistas and the first thing that popped into my head was assassin's creed viewpoints, The Anomaly was another piece of the legendary AC game, I like how they take the best of all worlds, having an apple of eden in guild wars 2 is great news to AC fan like me!
Sadly focus is not a very popular weapon, and not even used by my profession(ranger) yet still I want to reroll just for this weapon.
do you think the similarities between gw2 and assassin's creed were intended?

While I can see the similarities there, I'm not entirely sure it was a direct homage. I mean, a ball of glowing energy is practically a shoo-in for a focus in a game like GW2, regardless of similarities with things in other games. But, I do agree that there are indeed AC references left and right in GW2.

They are rather known for putting in all sorts of references to just about anything, as is probably very clear with the latest update: superadventurebox. But also in naming, weapons etc they reference all sorts of things. So while I couldn't possible konw what their intentions were when adding this focus, it wouldn't surprise me at all if it indeed is added as a reference to AC.
